"Mr. Hollywood. It is, as you are perfectly well aware, quite impossible for you to be in my kitchen. You came to this screen knowing full well the abysmal disregard in which I hold you."
"You called me a manky spunge."
"Why, when I am, as you insist, so relentlessly unpleasant to you, do you persist in seeking me out?"
"But I didn’t seek you out. You put the disc in the player."
"I don’t know."
"You must know. I do not, and my lack of comprehension is dementing me. I love you, Mr. Hollywood. I love you!"
"Do you see that, Mary? The brain is soft. He's half baked."

This show is so good. All the people in it are so real. The actual baking is very interesting.

This series is a hug for my soul.

A true tale of heartbreak, tragedy, and staggering injustice. I may never come to terms with the events that transpired in the tent of lies that cold, cold year.

As a baker, I loved the tension and creativity.

I agree with the person who made the previous comment, that the personalities were not as compelling as the previous series. In fact the first series to be shown in the US (labelled Season One) was the UK Season 5. And what is entitled Season 2 here, is actually the UK Season 4, meaning this batch was an earlier show than the US opener. I can only assume they wanted a more exciting cast of characters to hook people into the show.

Season 2 fell a little short for me. The competitors weren't as memorable, but the bakes were still outstanding.
